no beef at all Oints!
I just pointed out that other than the top 5 covers. the rest need to take their artwork more seriously.

We can appreciate cats stuff only when they appreciate the consumer. u cant put out a totally sloppy 10 minute cover and expect it to be appreciated jus cos u "puttin in work"

like i said,Pioneer Unit is doin it proper!
Damola's one is not even finished n it looks proper!
Dem Crackboys covers are proper!

The rest are really not proper!
YES,their creative and original.......so is a monkey with a paint brush!

Or it could just be a matter of opinion?

You obviously dig certain types of more 'straight-up' covers, so I can see why you wouldn't really be interested in more abstract concepts.

^^^it says nothing about the artist, or TYPE of music. why wud anyone wanna cop this? or even listen to it?
kinda reminds me of the backdrop to "Courage the cowardly dog" :D except DARK.

@Rob. sumtimes cats say its "abstract" but it really is just a load of kak. really :) glad i get u thru ur day man! im an entertainer! its my job :D

a toddler can give u ABSTRACT. abstract is not a measurable!
look at all the 5 mic album covers! ul notice that they tell u a lot about the artist,the music, and give you a clear image of whats in store!

And for up n comin cats like all us AGians, its a MUST,that u have a clear image of yourself on your COVER!!!!! i still dont have a clue how half yall"So called HOT RAPPERS" look like?

Erm...how to put this? f*** you. Take your blinkers off.

I'm not trying to be abstract. I just wanted a cool comic book cover. If you don't like it, don't buy it.

actually i have STUDIED art! i can paint(acrylics,oil pastel,water based paints), i can do sculptures, and i can also do graffitti.
anyways, an album artwork has DEFINED ARTISTIC OUTLINES!

Its like doing a POSTER or a BILLBOARD! abstactness in these cases are a NEGATIVE! not a PLUS!

Now if ur gonna do a piece for a ART GALLERY,theres more freedom for abstractness. ie. if its not a STILL LIFE or LANDSCAPE exhibition!

Theres a time and place for abstractness!
Its not for CD COVERS!

@ Rob, the comic book cover is a great idea!
But a perfect example of how to execute it is the Outkast "ATLiens" cover!
Theres a RESEMBLANCE in the animated images to ANDRE and BIGBOI(even the superpowers are kind of mirror reflections of their personalities).
Now , on ur cover, U ROCKIN A THICK CHAIN N SUM ICE! lol. DO U SEE THE CONTRADICTION HERE? or u jus gonna say "f*** u CASH" hahahahha

U know im right! jus that all these other dudes scared to tell u!that cover is a BAD LOOK! ;D

@Child - i have a very in depth understanding of art! and i know what TYPE of ART works in what TYPE OF SITUATION!

ie. if u a rapper. i dont think anyone will take u seriously if u got a lot of pink flowers and rainbows in ur cover art. rather keep it simple and introduce the ARTIST(musician),not the ARTIST(designer).

Thats why P units are so tight! The focus is on the ARTISTS and the type of music! simple yet powerful!
Now u come with all this wide array of EFFECTS and paintshop tricks that only another paintshop pro will appreciate!lol
